Reimagine Parkside Avenue: Senator Adams spreads the word about the Parkside Redesign Project competition

Neighbors and business owners are coming together to hold a contest for the best plan to redesign Parkside Avenue between Flatbush and Ocean Avenues.  The grand prize will be awarded to the best comprehensive plan to improve the block, judged by a panel of neighbors, merchants and local elected officials.  Honorary mentions will also be awarded for the best entry by anyone under the age of 12, the best entry by anyone under the age of 18, and the best entry that could be implemented for less than $50,000.

Senator Adams recently spent some time distributing flyers about the competition at the Parkside Avenue stop of the Q Train.
